I found myself questioning my desire to live an adventurous existence. After all, the verb definition of adventure is to “engage in hazardous and exciting activity, especially the exploration of unknown territory.”
Lying bruised and in pain on the cliff side of a rocky, muddy mountain huffing and puffing felt more like a woman lacking common sense as opposed to a woman engaging in a hazardous and exciting activity.
Now that I have both feet on level ground I am able to realize the truth about adventures. An adventure take us outside the confines of “safe” and “certain” pushing us mentally, physically and emotionally to places we did not know were possible. And in the moment; we want to resist the hazards surrounding us because, well, adventures can be painfully difficult.
The truth about adventures is that they are only amazing after the adventure has ended and you have somehow survived. It is in that moment that you realize you are capable of so much more than you ever imagined. Even if the adventure takes place on the side of a mountain with no one around to witness the moment you felt alive like never before–the truth is it really doesn’t matter. You will know. And for reasons that make no sense even to you, your mind will begin planning your next great adventure.
If buying or selling a home sounds like a frightful venture to you–I would love to help you turn a venture into an adventure. Let’s explore some unknown territory together and try to have a little fun along the way!
